ODOT Seeks Public Input on Reducing Noise Along Interstate 90
Public meeting set to discuss noise abatement process

Cleveland (Tuesday, October 26, 2010)The Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT), in conjunction with the City of Cleveland, will be holding a public meeting to investigate the option of reducing noise along Interstate 90 between West 117th Street and West 25th Street in the City of Cleveland.

ODOT’s primary concern is mitigating noise and pollution for those who live closest to the Interstate. ODOT is committed to offering residents choices for noise abatement including vegetative screening, noise barriers – or nothing at all.

The purpose of the meeting is to present the public with the results of a traffic noise analysis performed for properties along Interstate 90 from just west of West 117th Street to West 25th Street.

The locations for potential noise barrier walls will be presented and the Department will ask for comments and suggestions from residents that may be affected by potential noise barrier walls.

Attendees will be provided information on ODOT’s noise abatement process as well as a questionnaire seeking their opinions on the proposed options. Representatives from ODOT and the City of Cleveland will be available to answer questions.

What:     Noise Abatement Public Meeting

When:    Thursday, October 28, 2010, 6 to 8 p.m.

Where:  Our Lady of Mt. Carmel Church
               6928 Detroit Avenue
              Cleveland, Ohio 4102
